So here are the comps for my potential new client. They sent me 2 assignments and both were more old school illustrated than some of my more recent stuff.
It's been a long time since I had to think in that manner, everything was affliction-esque there for a long while.
If the client likes them then I will get more assignments and it will be a pretty steady gig so here's hoping

EVERYTIME I go to try out for a new client they ask me what my strengths are. Everytime they ask I say cars, trucks, tractors and mechanical things. They then proceed to send me nature or wildlife designs.
It happened again this week and so I had to do a duck hunting design. Im hoping that this strikes the right chord for them. It will be a really good client if I can hook them.

I dont expect it to be this easy everytime but I just sold some designs that no one ordered.
The other day I got an email from a client asking me for some beach designs. At the same time I had a new client ask me to do some other beach designs and some Vegas tourist designs. Well neither of those clients got back to me in what i deemed enough time. I just randomly submitted them to another company and out of the 20 designs I did for the 2 original clients the random client bought 14 designs.
So that and the book the Nerdist Way (by Chris Hardwick) gave me the idea that maybe in my downtime I should still do designs. Not just drawings or little funny things for me or my twitter peeps just to see.
Designs on a subject I pick. For instance I chose to do some designs of a Military theme which i posted here a day or so ago.
I didn't have any paying gigs this weekend so instead of taking some time off I sat at my Mac and designed those shirts.
Today I thought I'd get them organized and send them off to random companies hoping to sell them.
By the grace of God I sold them to the first place I sent them.
Now I'm motivated to always be designing.
Man I'm jazzed.
